Waist training is a great method for all of those seeking a thinner and more slender waist. It is used widely by women all over the world…and it is also very popular amongst cross dressers out there. Sometimes people use it as a temporary help when they are looking to get a reduced waist, while others adapt it as a lifestyle. It is a very complex world, by the way.
It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out with waist training or if you are a seasoned practitioner. You can always use some good tips to improve your practice and training.
The first thing you need to do is to get a good quality piece. Like any good hobby, if this is something you enjoy or want to get into it for real, it is always a good idea to invest in a good and appropriate corset.
You need to focus on getting one that has a good quality, a good fit and an appropriate curvature. Keep in mind that a corset that doesn’t offer a well defined waistband will basically make you look cylindrical and will not offer that hourglass shape you are looking for.
Besides, you want to get a piece that looks well made and strong; this is not the time or place to get a flimsy corset. You best option here is to get a corset that it is made out of steel boning, not one that is made out of plastic. You also want to get a piece that offers evenly pressure all over your body, more specifically to your torso. Make sure the laces are also strong, this will make your piece sturdy and it will last you longer. And when you are getting a corset, remember: don’t buy one that comes in different sizes like small or large. The type of corset you need for waist training will not come in several sizes.
What you do need to focus on is the measures on your body for the corset to fit perfectly. Before you get one, just measure from your belly button.
When it comes to shape, you want to get one that is made for men. This will actually make you achieve that so looked after shape. This means the piece should be a bit narrow on the hips and should also have a long torso.
Keep in mind that short (10.5 inches, approximately) will be more aimed towards shaping your immediate waist. On the other hand, if you are looking to focus on the actual belly or pooch, it is best to go either with a 11.5 inches or a 14 inches corset with under bust. This will depend on what you need exactly and what your particular preferences look like.
Once you finally have one that you like, you will need to break it in. This means you shouldn’t start wearing it all the time all at once. Your body will need time to adjust to the sensation; when you are first starting out, don’t wear it too tight and only use it for a couple of hours every day.
Every body is different and this process involves re shaping the body, so be patient and be aware not everyone will move to the same pace or will experience the same progress.
Several factors are involved in this, besides the shape and the habits/routine you create with the corset. A body’s core density, the distance from the rib cage to the pelvic bone and how flexible the cartilage is, will definitely impact on the process. Having said that, you can start to experience visual changes after about 3-6 months.
And always remember to be safe: don’t use your corset if you have swelling on your stomach, numb legs, your breath is coming up short and/or you have pain on your stomach.
